Youth group holds fundraiser for fallen friend

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- Teens from the KUMI youth group in Yakima held a car wash Saturday in memory of a friend.

20 year-old Angel Garcia died last weekend when he hit another vehicle in Moxee.

Friends say he was a great person, and was part of their youth group.

They held a car wash today to help raise money for Garcia's family.

They say while they can't help them get over the pain, they hope they can reduce their financial burden.

"Angel was not just a member of our group, but we are a family and he's part of our family. So, we want to do everything we can to help them out. Anything we can do, we're willing to do, because we're there for each other," said Moises Licea, a youth group member that knew Garcia.

If you would like to help the family you can contact the youth group at (509) 406-2591.
